Off Panel #8: Comic Tangents with Joe Keatinge

The writer of Shutter joins the show to talk all things comics

On this week’s episode of Off Panel from, David welcomes Joe Keatinge, the writer of Shutter and the upcoming Ringside at Image Comics. Joe joins the show this week to talk about the economics of the creator-owned model, what creators can get from working in a comic shop, making comics work for you, the distribution system, social media, art vs. commerce, the evolution and development of comics, and a lot, lot more. If it sounds like it’s a sprawling conversation, that’s because it is. But it’s a very interesting and tangent filled conversation with a great creator that touches on all things comic books.
